Interesting reading

This has to be the most interesting e-bay auction I have ever seen (and I have been known to surf e-bay for some strange shit.)

Thank you to John for posting a link to it in his journal.

Absolutely fascinating.

Re:
I think you should hit him just BECAUSE..
And hit him once for me, too.

You know, that's Jon Theory #1: Everyone who knows Jon wants to hit him.

You might enjoy the community "darksideofebay" (I can't remember how to do the community link, but if you go to my info page you'll see it under my listing). People post the wierdest shit that they find on there, making my life easier, as I don't have to search for it ;)

Good story.

What I find bizarre is that people are bidding on it. Because really, this is a no win situation. Either it's scary haunted or it's a good story that takes up perfectly good floor space.

That was certainly a chilly read at 2:30 in the morning - very fear inducing.

One thing that I find odd about it is that none of the people involved seem to have thought about seeking out a rabbi or some other well person who would be versed in such things to sort things out rather than selling it on eBay, especailly the part about all of the bad things happening to people in the initial persons family, yet he proceeded to give it to every relative he could think of, even after his mother stroke.

Re:
I find this odd as well, which does make the story suspicious.

Having had a scientific education, I do not think of myself as superstitious, and in fact actively dismiss most of that which I consider rubbish.

However, when confronted with something for which I can't find an explanation, I will go to somebody who might have one. In this case, that would be a rabbi or an expert/scholar of the Kabbalah ... preferably, somebody who was both.

Re:
Actually, I'd be rather impressed if you could find a rabbi who was wililng to deal with that - most religious folk I know tend to shy away from the mystic elements of Judaism.

That was very entertaining. Sometime I'll tell you my own ghost story, which (I shit you not) truthfully starts with "It was a dark and stormy night in the Scottish Highlands..."

wow
that was a really good read.

i looked at the contents of the box and, even if i hadn't read the story, i would probably agree that there is something very wrong with that box. i tried to email the seller to offer my condolences about having his hair fall out and my computer froze. go figure.
